Finally we know what all the fuss was about! Two months after Portland’s indie-rock elite gathered for the the premiere of Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks’ star-studded video for “Gardenia,” from the album Real Emotional Trash, the complete clip is now available here!
Below, watch director Dantronix’s treatment, which sees Weezer guitarist Brian Bell, Mudhoney’s Steve Turner, Girl Talk’s Gregg Gillis, Ratatat, and even Rose City mayor-elect Sam Adams sing-along to the breezy, tuneful song. Noticeably absent: Malkmus or any of the Jicks. I suppose Saint Stephen is busy prepping that expanded reissue of Pavement’s Brighten the Corners, which, by the way, has just been pushed back from November 18 to December 9 [via Pitchfork.com].
